Blondes Share New Single ‘The Basement’

Following on from the enormous success of their recent single Love In The Afternoon, Nottingham-based indie-rockers Blondes are back with their brand new single The Basement, a bright, shimmering piece of indie/alt-pop music.

Out now via LAB Records, The Basement is the latest single to be taken from the band's upcoming EP, In Separation (due for release on July 14th via C3 Records/ LAB Records) and continues to showcase the band's rich and driven direction. This is a song about feeling isolated and trying to find a way out, a relatable message that I can personally relate with. This message is beautifully delivered through the smooth, expressive vocals which are backed by a captivating indie-pop production that pairs infectious guitar riffs with a killer bass, steady drums, bright synths with an overall 90s pop/rock vibe that makes it perfect to be the soundtrack of a coming-of-age movie. Accompanying the release, the band shares its official music video which you can check out below!



Adding about The Basement
This is a song that started as a demo during the first lockdown, and it was written pretty much completely remotely by emailing it to each other and adding parts! Fittingly, it's a song about feeling isolated and looking for a way out, which I imagine was a very well known feeling for everyone at that time. I love the energy of this track and the way it dials up in the choruses. We returned to work with Rich Turvey on this one, who produced the majority of our first EP. He helped take the demo we’d made and step it up into the thumping single-ready track it’s become.
